‘Float for the Boat’ Kayak-a-thon for Thacher Island.

Thacher Island Association is looking for participants to compete in a Kayak-a-thon on August 14 from 12:30 to 6:00pm. The Kayak-a-thon will start from Back Beach in Rockport and paddle the 3 miles to Thacher Island. Participants are asked to sign up donating sponsors to support the Association’s funding raising campaign for a new boat. Prizes bags will be given to participants who raise at least $75.00 and additional prizes awarded to participants who raise the most money. The Association is a non-profit 501-3C organization dedicated to the maintenance of the Island and all donations are tax deductible.

The Kayak-a-thon will be held on the 375th anniversary of the wreck of Anthony Thacher on the island on August 14, 1635.
